Alphabet Austria, Germany 2013 – 113min.

Short description



Enormous classrooms, chalkboards covered with hieroglyphs, tired students, fiercely monitored exams and demotivated job applicants. Has education become mechanical? Erwin Wagenhofer asks hard questions about the education system. In his view, children should be encouraged to dream, develop their creative faculties and be stimulated positively. Unfortunately, the humanist vocation of the educator too often buckles under economic pressure. What happens to the submissive and faded people resulting from this system? A very black picture painted by the Austrian director.
